Lifeline Chiropractic and Dr. James Stein in Norristown, PA can help you manage many types of pain to ensure you have a healthier life. One of our primary areas of concern is neck pain. Understanding the various care methods available to you can ensure that you choose the option that makes the most sense for your overall needs.
Self-Care May Help You
When you first experience neck pain, take a break from strenuous activities that may put a strain on your neck and cause difficulties in your muscles. Ice and heat can help reduce swelling and minimize your overall pain symptoms. (Remember not to apply either for more than fifteen minutes at a time, and to let fifteen minutes pass between applications.)
Gentle stretching may also help, as can self-messages by decreasing neck muscle tension and reducing pain. Range-of-motion exercises can also help to lower your pain and ensure that you feel better.
However, there's only so much that self-care can do for your neck pain in Norristown, PA. It is essential not to wait to reach out to our chiropractic team to get help. Let's break down a few of the ways that we can help you recover from this long-term pain problem.
Ways We Can Help You
Our process starts with detailed and highly personalized x-rays to see what is happening in your neck. Once we diagnose a problem, we use motion-sensing and intelligent-adjusting instruments that help to adjust your neck carefully. Of course, our traditional chiropractic care methods also include hands-on help.
We'll also use percussion massaging tools that help to relieve tension throughout your neck and relax your muscles. These tools can focus on areas of up to eight millimeters deep, giving you the focused and effective relief needed to improve your muscle health and avoid long-term discomfort.
If necessary, we can also help with steps like spinal decompression if herniated discs cause pain throughout your back and neck. Lastly, we can help you adjust your nutrition and exercise plans to help better support bone and muscle health and prevent tense and painful neck muscles.
